Vivior has its origins in a concern about the global epidemic of myopia. One of Vivior’s founders became aware of this issue through a very personal experience: his daughter is short-sighted. It therefore became his goal to find a way to help her and other children who suffer from short-sightedness.
The idea developed into a monitor which soon caught the attention of cataract and refractive surgeons, as knowing the patient’s goals and expectations is critical in determining the intraocular lens or refractive procedure that best suits vision demands and lifestyle.
With this challenge in mind, Vivior was founded in Switzerland in 2017 by a group of experienced eye care professionals who believe that all cataract and refractive surgeons should be able to count on objective data to enhance the patient post-op experience, particularly lifestyle expectations. The monitor soon developed into a lightweight, user-friendly device - the Vivior Monitor. We paid special attention to the integration of the data into the clinical workflow, the software interface, and tools for patient education.
Since then, the product has been the subject of several studies and reviews by some of the most experienced cataract and refractive surgeons in the world.
